Virtual Fundraising Ideas

Times have changed, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get together and have fun! Our amazing supporters have been holding online events and fundraising to help people rough sleeping throughout lockdown.

Virtual Fundraising

Whether you are hosting a virtual concert, or virtual murder mystery party this year, you could add fundraising for The Connection through a raffle, auction of promises, or by donating what you would have spent on drinks or meals out.

There are plenty of ways you can get together and start fundraising from home! See below for some ideas on what to do, some of which you may be able to adapt and run at home if Government Guidelines allow. If you’d like to have a chat about your plans get in touch with
